MacLeod, Jason; Yang, Harrison Hao; Shi, Yinghui – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2019
Student-to-student connectedness is promoted by active, student-centered learning processes. It is a socio-psychological result of interpersonal communication and behavior in the classroom, which emulates belonging, cohesiveness, and supportiveness among peers. Currently, two survey instruments exist--Dwyer et al.'s (Commun Res Rep 21(3):264-272,…

Brown, Abbie H.; Green, Timothy D. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2018
Instructional Design literature provides descriptions of established models that are particularly helpful for novices learning the patterns and approaches that have historically proven successful. However, it does not provide as much information about the design process in its largest sense. The popularity of established ID models may cause…

Mora, Alberto; Riera, Daniel; González, Carina; Arnedo-Moreno, Joan – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2017
Learner's motivation difficulties are recognized as a problem in diverse educational scenarios, reaching up to university degrees. Among other techniques that are often applied by instructors to counteract this issue, those related to the use of gaming elements seem to very promising. In this context, considering the use of game-like properties in…

Bernard, Robert M.; Borokhovski, Eugene; Schmid, Richard F.; Tamim, Rana M. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2014
This article contains a second-order meta-analysis and an exploration of bias in the technology integration literature in higher education. Thirteen meta-analyses, dated from 2000 to 2014 were selected to be included based on the questions asked and the presence of adequate statistical information to conduct a quantitative synthesis. The weighted…

Hung, Jui-Long; Zhang, Ke – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2012
This study investigated the longitudinal trends of academic articles in Mobile Learning (ML) using text mining techniques. One hundred and nineteen (119) refereed journal articles and proceedings papers from the SCI/SSCI database were retrieved and analyzed. The taxonomies of ML publications were grouped into twelve clusters (topics) and four…
